Hi Tweeters,

This morning I, along with other birders, was lucky enough to see some birds found by others in Fall City along 321st Ave SE/SE 31st Street. There were two Yellow-breasted Chats, the first discovered by John Puschock and the second in the same area by Alex Meilleur. I saw the first one very poorly, and much later, the second one well, after enjoying his song for a long time. He flew across the road and sang on a wire for a minute. Now when do Yellow-breasted Chats ever do that?

At the same location I saw a male Lesser Goldfinch, undoubtedly one of the pair that Sam Fason found a few days ago (and he found the pair again today). As if we need more, there are also Bank Swallows in the area, though I didn’t see those myself.

Good birding,

Mary Saylor
